Sonchiriya review: Riveting Bandit Saga of soul searching characters!
We also get a disturbing account of casteist mindsets and pathetic state of women in the ruthless patriarchic setup. It also points out that being good or bad cannot be defined by profession.
Some good hard hitting dialogues give us a razor-sharp view of mindsets. A female bandit based on Phoolan Devi says that all this caste system is only for the men for the women lie further lowest in the hierarchy.
The film definitely deserved better promotions and wider screenings and shows.
Watch this relentless game of death in the form of superb artful cinema. Thumbs up to writing, direction, and performances that come together to give us a riveting watch.
